I'm not sure what doesn't make sense about it.

Phone numbers apply to mobile phones which move between locations.

Phone numbers also apply to businesses which do not move between locations nearly as much.

Planes, trains and ferries and buses offer things like wifi, alcohol, disabled access and lavatories. That doesn't mean that we do not include that data on the map for buildings.

I'm not sure I understand the logic of "some non-mappable things have a particular property, therefore there's no validity in being able to apply the property to things which are on the map".

Nothing in the proposal suggested applying the tag to events as events are not in OpenStreetMap. Indeed, it pointed to a large variety of geographical locations that have dress codes, some of which have been in the same location and had a dress code for many decades.
